14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

Something that I must often remind my self of, and something that I have been thinking about as I look at this image, is that failures can become something we learn from, experiences we can appreciate because they pushed us forward, and I am learning that failures, even when it is accompanied by frustration, are certainly something that I should not fear, and with it comes the gift of humility if you accept it. Let your failures live, not to tear you down, but to encourage you to keep trying. They are, after all, our greatest lessons. And never ever give up.
